Total Flavonoid Content The determination of total flavonoids was performed according to the colorimetric assay of Kim et al. In vitro culture, micropropagation and the production of ephedrine and other alkaloids.

The alaya category of antioxidant activity measures the ability of plant extracts to scavenge free radicals. A Blotter and B agar plate techniques used for enumeration. Advances in Biological Research. The effect of seed storage containers on aflatoxins pro- duction was investigated for seeds of many crops how- ever, this approach does akata provide a comprehensive view of the impact of range seeds.


However, preparative HPLC collection of pure flavonoids from Ephedra plant along with NMR experiments would assist in the exact determination of their structure. Other chemical are also present in the plant that are used for medicines.

Ephedra alata Decne. — The Plant List

Alkaloidal, lignan and phenolic constituents of Ephedra alata. Phenolic compounds are also believed to play an essential role as a health protecting factor.

Nevertheless, similar mycological studies for many other seeds showed that Aspergillus and Fusarium were the most slata genera as seedborne fungi [2; 16]. There is a correlation between antioxidant activities and total phenolic content but not with total flavonoids ephedrs.

Cotton cloth bags 5. Ehpedra alata is a small terrestrial shrub or Chamaephyte. AJPS Table 4-a. Prolonged storage periods were accompanied with decrease in vigor index ranged between slight and significant reduction depending upon the nature of storage containers.

Direct measure of total antioxidant activity of biological fluids and modified version for simultaneous measurement of total antioxidant power and ascorbic alatx concentration.


To date, the scientific literature does not report about the antioxidant activity and phenolic content or flavonoid content of any type of Ephedra plant from Palestine. Cupric reducing antioxidant power, DPPH: Ephedra pehedra grows widely in Palestine.

The employment of cloth bags followed by paper bags, tin cans and polyethylene bags respectively diminished such as sharpness in the deterioration of seed biochemical aspects Tables 6 a-d. The stem of this plant contain alkaloid ephedrineand other antimicrobial chemicals, which help protect this plant from disease. Support Center Support Center. The reducing properties are associated with the presence of compounds which exert their action by breaking the epheddra radical chain by donating a hydrogen atom.
